It is a story of sweet success, because their quality products speak for themselves. What began as a backyard hobby, boiling sap in a “homemade rig,” steadily evolved into a thriving maple sugaring business-twice awarded the Carlisle Trophy for the best maple syrup in New Hampshire. Maple Guys owner Chris Pfeil, assisted by his wife Kim, and with support from part-owner Chris Schoen, continually expands product lines to better serve customers.

Along with tempting traditional maple syrup products, The Maple Guys offers customers numerous items. Informative books teach maple sugaring and candy making. Custom gift baskets are available for personal and business gift giving, and wedding guests or party goers can take home a sweet remembrance of New England in the form of a Maple Guys unique and stylish maple syrup wedding or party favor.

The Maple Guys offers maple sugaring equipment, and accessories and supplies, ranging from buckets and spouts to sugarhouses and evaporators. The Pfeils firmly believe in the need for the sugaring industry to rely more on a local, sustainable fuel source. When searching for a clean, energy efficient wood-fired evaporator to replace their aging unit, they found one that exceeded their expectations. Recently installed, it will be in production this sugaring season. This fulfills their objective to have the first clean wood-burning gasification evaporator in New Hampshire.

Give them a call, or better yet pay a visit to The Maple Guys Open House during New Hampshire Maple Weekend, March 27 & 28, 2010.  Visit their website for details, and while there, view their many products. Support a local sugarer!
